6:14 am
there you go. this is a live look over boston. just a few minutes from sunrise, but not a lot of light there on the horizon. a damp start, it's muggy. 68 degrees. you can see the humidity up high with the dewpointings running in the mid 60s. and we have a wind off the ocean and that easterly flow has brought in this moisture. so the sticky feel out there. the muggies will be with us throughout the day. it has brought in fog, too. visibility is running a few miles here on the north and it was under a half a mile at times early this morning in worcester. it has come up to two miles, but we're dealing with rain out this way, and you can see the bands of showers, light ones, have developed and they have been going towards the north and west so the steadier rain is starting to shift northwest in the worcester area but still getting in on light rain around this area towards lowell over to this area, and we have showers

6:16 am
the remnants of hermine start out tomorrow morning, and they get to kick out in the afternoon. this front will fumble -- funnel up more humidity. the front comes through on thursday night and westerly winds bring in heat coming up for friday, so we may make a run towards 90 degrees here on friday. if we do it it will be the 21st time in boston. most number of 90-degree days heat coming back at us. we have a chance of a shower or a thunderstorm on sunday. otherwise dry this weekend. olessa: thank you. the roads are in good shape with the volume building. a live look at the bridge and the lever connector. you can see the southbound delay in place traveling towards the bottom of the screen. let's get to the maps. we're watching one accident. this is on 128. expect one lane to be closed, and there will be delays on the opposite side of the road.
